Mission Hospital located in Mission Viejo, California has chosen CenTrak, Inc. to install its real-time locating system to enhance asset management and equipment distribution services.
The Orange County hospital had roughly 1,400 pieces of movable medical equipment tagged, eliminating equipment loss/theft while decreasing time spent searching for and cleaning equipment.
Integrated into the CenTrak infrastructure is a Web-based information portal VixPort, developed by partner VIXIA. The software automatically identifies the location of equipment and alerts the proper personnel that equipment inventory levels are properly maintained.
CenTrak’s core real-time locating system uses a patented combination of second-generation infrared (Gen2IR) and active RFID technology. Battery-powered location monitors transmit a unique room number, which is received by any tag in that room. The tag communicates the room number and its own unique ID via radio frequency, allowing hospital personnel can access this information anywhere in real time.
